Immediately after the broadcast, Big Bang on Wednesday will release EP “E,” containing two tracks, “Let’s Not Love” and “Fantastic” -- by the subunit GD&TOP. The upcoming album “E” is the fourth and the final installment of the band’s ongoing project album “MADE” series.

As part of the project album “MADE,” the band has dropped pairs of songs each month since May. All the songs -- including “Loser,” “Bae Bae,” “Bang Bang Bang” and “We Like 2 Party” -- reached the top spots on local music charts.

The “V” app, which was launched on Saturday, is a new live-streaming mobile app by Korea’s largest portal site Naver, featuring 23 K-pop singers to interact in real time with the global audiences and fans. The stellar lineup of stars include Beast, Wonder Girls, 2PM, SM Town and many more. The beta version of V app is now available for Android only. The iOS version comes out in mid-August.
